On Saturday, November 27, 2010, I’ll be a guest at the Darklit Fest of Durham taking place at Oshawa Public Libraries McLaughlin Branch (65 Bagot Street, Oshawa, Ontario). The one-day event features panel discussions, author readings, pitch sessions with publishers (including Burning Effigy Press) and signings. Other literary attendees include Kelley Armstrong (guest of honour), Brett Alexander Savory (author and ChiZine Publications founder), Sephera Giron, John R. Little, Gord Rollo, YA scribe Lesley Livingston (Wondrous Strange, Darklight), Ian Rogers (Temporary Monsters, The Ash Angels) and more. For a complete guest list and schedule, visit the event’s official website at https://sites.google.com/site/darklitfestofdurham/.
As mentioned, I’ll be fielding horror fiction pitches for Burning Effigy Press and selling our titles. I’m also sitting on the Deal of No Deal: How to Sell Your Writing to Publishers and Editors panel discussion.
We don’t get a lot of events like this in Ontario, so if you’d like to see more, please come out and show your support. There’s more genre talent in Canada than you may think.
